I'm hoping to get a balcony for my first cruise (hoping to cruise Alaska in 2005), money may be an issue as there are a lot of shore excursions I would like to go on. The extra $1000 for two people for a balcony can go a long way toward excursions. Looking at the ships deck plans what do you think of the inside rooms (cat. H) on the Lido Deck near the front of the ship? Is that an area right where one can walk out and look? How about the inside (cat. I) rooms, Aloha deck, near the aft of the ship? Is there much of a crowd there as a pool is located right there? Any other suggestions?
